One of the issues that employers raise with me is whether they have to provide evaluations for employees on any kind of routine or regular basis. The short answer is no. However, it’s a very good tool that you can use to make sure that an employee is doing what you want them to do,and if somebody is not coming up to snuff, to give them guidance on how to rectify the situation. Again, this is more of a management practice than a legal question. For most of us, it’s a lot easier to correct bad behavior and cheaper than it is to go out and hire a new employee to replace somebody who is not doing the job.
